  • [02] CYPRUS - REPORT


    Democratic Party President Marios Karoyian has been elected President of the House of Representatives, with 36 votes in favour, none against and 15 abstentions.

    [02] CYPRUS - REPORT

    A solution to the Cyprus problem would yield a peace dividend of at least 1.8 billion euro per year in new business with Turkey and other opportunities for the island, with each Cypriot family standing to gain an extra 5,500 euro per year, according to a new research from an all-island team of economists.

    On the benefits of a solution, that would reunite Cyprus which has been divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion, the UN top envoy on the island, expressing a personal view, said that a just settlement will mean increased security, greater stability for the region, a rise in trade and conditions that will allow culture and art to flourish.

    In a report entitled, The day after: Commercial opportunities following a solution to the Cyprus problem and sponsored by the Cyprus Centre of the Peace Research Institute of Oslo (PRIO), the Cyprus-based researchers, Fiona Mullen, Praxoula Antoniadou Kyriacou and Ozlem Oguz, project growth in trade between Cyprus and Turkey for the first seven years after a solution to the Cyprus problem.

    In his opening address, UNSG Special Representative to Cyprus Michael Moller said the report makes an extremely valuable contribution to discussion about the future of the island.


    Cypriot Minister of Education and Culture Andreas Demetriou announced Thursday the founding of a Medical School in Cyprus.

    In statements after a meeting with the rector authorities of the University of Cyprus, Demetriou said this has been an old-standing request of the University, adding that the University has been asked to submit its proposal in cooperation with the Education Minister services, so that procedures to the establishment of the Medical School move forward rapidly.

    Demetriou said that after the submission of the proposal the Education Ministry will submit all required provisions for approval by the Ministerial Council.
